A CountDown Events Countryside Wedding!



Planning an intimate and rustic wedding? We are often asked about unique locations as most couples are searching for an "out of the box" wedding! In BC we are blessed with many amazing locations; however as soon as you venture off the proven path it is best to hire the assistance of professionals to ensure your wedding is smooth and stress free! To celebrate our wedding season and the official start of summertime in Vancouver and British Columbia we wanted to share a beautiful CountDown Events Weddingon the stunning Pender Island. With the Ceremony held at a cabin, overlooking the water and the rest of the Gulf Islands of Beautiful British Columbia.

For the reception, an outdoor area was gorgeously decorated to take you on a trip to rural France and the European countryside for a stand-up cocktail celebration. For a perfect blend of the island touch and elegance, the catering of the wedding however was left to non-other than href="http://poetscove.com/" target="_blank"> Poets Cove, we highly recommend exploring this amazing gem location on Pender Island.

The bride carried a gorgeous Wildflower, White Peonies and the Star of Bethlehem Blooms bouquet that augmented the style and theme of this rustic and outdoorsy wedding. Even though the style of the wedding had a more relaxed countryside feel we still worked with the best wedding professionals to ensure the vision and execution were absolutely perfect.
